Heart arrhythmias are one of the top ten reasons why people go to the hospital. Certain arrhythmias can cause sudden cardiac death, which kills 100,000 in the UK annually. According to the Arrhythmia Alliance, 80% of these deaths could be avoided through better diagnosis.
Every day hospitals around the world are under enormous pressure. More patients, sicker patients, fewer resources trying to help them all. When the worst happens outside the intensive care unit the call sometimes comes too late to help. Fortunately, now there is a way to predict critical events in hospital before they happen.
Täglich herrscht in Krankenhäusern überall auf der Welt hoher Druck. Mehr Patienten, morbidere Patienten und weniger Fachkräfte um allen zu helfen. Wenn sich außerhalb der Intensivstationen der Zustand eines Patienten massiv verschlechtert, kommt der Ruf um Hilfe oft zu spät. An English version of this handout is available.
Die Patient Status Engine (PSE) ist ein innovatives, integrierbares und anpassungsfähiges Patienten-monitoring außerhalb der Intensivstation. Die PSE bietet eine kostengünstiges, kontinuierliches und detailliertes Monitoring für alle Patienten auf Station und daheim. An English version of this handout is available
Laut der deutschen Sepsis Stiftung sterben jährlich 67.800 Menschen in Deutschland an Sepsis. Im Vergleich: 50.900 Menschen sterben jährlich an einem akuten Herzinfarkt. Die hohen Fallzahlen, die hohe Sterblichkeit, die lebenslangen Spätfolgen und die hohen Kosten müssen reduziert werden. An English version of this handout is available

Now, for the first time we have the tools to check vital signs on mobile wireless digital devices and capture all the relevant data from each individual to push the field forward.” Eric Topol Creative Destruction of Medicine: How the Digital Revolution Will Create Better Health Care. 2013

The Patient Status Engine (PSE) is an innovative, continuous, vital sign data acquisition, analysis and prediction platform that combines unobtrusive wireless wearable sensors, wireless networks, analytical algorithms and big data to provide low cost, continuous, high resolution monitoring for all patients in hospital, and at home.
In just five years, Oxford-based Isansys has developed a lifesaving heart monitor and secured contracts with two Birmingham hospitals. Deals are lined up with healthcare professionals in Germany and the company is already employing 15 staff here and is hiring workers in India. Here Rebecca Weir discusses the secrets of her success.
Isansys is a company that digitises life at both home and in acute care settings. It has developed a technology which no longer ties patients to the hospital bed or tangles them within over-sensitive and sometimes temperamental wires and cords, but instead allows them the freedom to heal in a safe environment.

NHS trials of the LifeTouch technology have produced less erratic readings and allowed the young patients to play and cuddle with their parents. Read the story here
Many agree that healthcare has been slower than most other sectors to pick up on the digital revolution, but developments in technology – especially in the area of mobile, wireless health – has accelerated significantly in the last few years and Keith Errey, CEO of UK firm Isansys, believes that ten years from now, it would be “inconceivable that patients are going to be wired up to anything.”
Monitoring at-risk patients better and more frequently is required good practice. The Patient Status Engine allows you to move beyond simply monitoring towards new paradigms in which sepsis may be detected early using low cost unobtrusive wireless wearable “smart patch” technology and new data-driven physiologic biomarkers.

In 2013, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) reported that patients and their families should feel that a hospital was a place of care and comfort, somewhere they would be looked after. It suggested that monitoring patients by checking them and their health regularly and taking action if they showed any signs of becoming worse would help avoid more serious problems.
